Clark: Wheels In Motion

2 January 2015

Manager On January Window

Lee Clark says the 'wheels are in motion' ahead of the January transfer window officially opening tomorrow.

The manager is aiming to be very proactive in the market following the departures of various loan players this week.

Already in talks about new arrivals, discussions also continue with a number of players soon to be out of contract.

"We've got a bit of time between now and the Millwall game but we do need to re-asses bringing players in. The chairman is well aware of that, we're in dialogue every day so he knows where I'm upto," Clark said.

"The wheels are in motion, I've spoken to a lot of people over the last few weeks. I've been talking to various clubs, managers, coaches and agents about bringing players in. That's up and running and I'm hoping to have a couple of new faces in at least before the next league game.

"The contracts of Eagles, O'Hara, Nosworthy and O'Dea will also be coming to an end soon and we're in discussions with them as we speak." 

Given the loan deals that have expired this week, the manager has been boosted by an empty treatment room ahead of Sunday's FA Cup tie at Aston Villa.

"Today we had a clean bill of health, Gary MacKenzie joined in with the group as well. José Cubero is not training with the group but he's now out on the grass with the fitness coach.

"Steven Davies was struggling with his neck problem but he's declared himself fit. They all want to be at Villa Park and playing against Aston Villa," he added.
